Volunteer Programs

The University Community and Career Skills Development Transcript records student participation in approved volunteer programs.

The following are notes regarding volunteer programs. For further information see the Community and Career Skills Development Transcript Policy at:

  • Only volunteer programs are eligible for inclusion on the Community and Career Skills Development Transcript. Programs in which the student receives either payment or academic credit are not eligible.
  • The volunteer program must require a significant commitment from participating students. As a general guide, a minimum level of commitment in any 12-month period (which can span successive semesters in two calendar years) would normally be 40 hours.
  • Entries on a student’s Community and Career Skills Development Transcript will only be made on successful completion of the volunteer program.
  • Students may elect not to have a particular volunteer program listed on their Community and Career Skills Development Transcript.
  • Appeals relating to inclusion of items in a student’s Community and Career Skills Development Transcript will be decided by the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic).
